The NBA average is 32 attempts per game - Celtics take 36.  
The NBA average is 11 makes per game - Celtics make 12.6
The NBA average shooting percentage is 36% - Celtics are shooting 34%.

As usual, taking a small sample size out of context is a very poor way to make an argument.


What poor argument is being made and who exactly is making it?

I agree that the 55 attempts was an outlier.

But if it's a bad night of shooting then it's an automatic loss.
It's live by the 3 and die by the 3.

Celts need more diversity in their offense.

THIS^^^  

The NBA is a 3 point driven league, this is nothing unique to the Celtics - who in fact arent nearly as dependant on the 3 as many other teams.

I dont happen to like the trend either, but putting you head in the sand doesnt change the fact that this is the modern NBA.

I think both you and fierce are correct. No kidding.

We do need more diversity in the offense and as you stated the 3 point shot is part of the way the NBA is playing.

As long as J.... B..... is not part of the discussion I am happy!
